What I liked about the Portuguese song is because the lyrics are so well done, and the words were very well chosen. What's inpressive is that most of people voted to them without understanding.

Earlier today I saw on TV Salvador arriving in Portugal, and people made him a couple of questions..
He said many people sang in English but they didnt even know what they were singing (because they dont know english) which tbh is really sad lol

At least Spain wasn't the host country, unlike Austria in 2015 getting last place while hosting the ESC. That must've been tough (probably it will be us next year as well )

The first time I heard our song, I was just like "yeah, it's pretty cute", but then the second time I listened to it, I'm gonna be all cheesy, but it's true, it really touched my heart and I was on the verge of crying, and it's been that way every time I listen to it, and I don't usually get emotional over songs. I could really feel the emotion of the song, and Salvador's voice was what brought the soul into it.

I agree, SrDanielPonces, the lyrics had meaning, add it to Salvador's performance and melody and the song became more than that, it became a story.

And the way they did the performance for the actual show couldn't have been more perfect. It was magic.

The song is also so beautiful on piano. >w<

Now that the post-victory euphoria is almost gone, we're gonna have to start thinking about how we're gonna get 30+ million euros to host the damned thing next year

After getting the cd I discovered the Russian entry and became addicted. It's one of my favourites now.
